On request of one of my russian blog readers I made a quick tutorial on how to make coin beads.We'll be making these beads: Start with measuring out equal amounts of scrap clay for each bead core. Roll scrap clay into balls. Wrap a bead core into a background clay sheet. Pinch the ends of pretty clay, hiding scrap clay. Roll bead into a ball. The ideal spherical shape of the beads is not necessary at this step. Slice your canes. Put equal amount of cane slices on each bead. Roll bead into a ball, trying to make it as spherical as possible this time. Now beads are ready to be turned into coins: Prepare a surface for flattening the beads. On top of the paper put tiles or thick paper cards. Put your beads between the tiles. Leave enough space between the beads. Put another sheet of paper on top of the beads. Press your beads with a tile or a piece of glass. I prefer to use glass since I like seeing what I am doing :)) Now you have coin beads all of the same thickness. Bake the beads:

Chrissy’s Cabochon DIY « Gauche AlchemyMichelle here! Imagine my deeply felt chagrin when Christina revealed that she had made her own beautiful cabochons for half the price! What’s more? Luckily Chrissy will now share how she did it with us- WIN! Here’s the down and dir-tay on my latest addiction, making my very own cabochons with silicone molds. Thanks to my crafty friend Jess, I was introduced to these silicon molds sold through MoldMuse on Etsy. Christina used Sculpey clay to make her DYI cabochons. Never fear because this Mama is here to show you lovely femme fatales how to use them! The very first thing you wanna do is grab your supplies. You may need to work the clay a bit to soften it up. Next, mash it down in there. Once your clay is worked down in there, you may need to add a little bit more to fill the mold up to the edge of the cutout. Once your mold is filled, set it aside. If that’s all you plan on doing, then go on ahead and pop that bad boy in the oven. Fill your mold just as you would a “regular” mold. Voila!

June 2010I think I am keeping her for myself. I love her sweet face and am not ready to say good-bye to her. She is one of my favorite sculpts. Steampunk is an interesting genre with a blend of Victorian, science fiction (think Jules Verne), fantasy, and, of course, the age and invention of steam power. I might end up putting her on my web site, but for now she takes her place in my family room with other magical creatures and babies that I have created. I haven't named her. Here are some facts about her:The watch is brand new, but I aged it to keep with the look.I hand sculpted her satchel and need to take some close up photos so you can see how realistic it is!

Dora’s ExplorationsTen on Tuesday: Polymer Clay ButtonsButton, button, who's got the button? ;o)Remember playing that children's game? I have a few family members who are interested in polymer clay. They're already involved in quilt-making, and they're particularly focused on using polymer clay to make buttons to use as embellishments on their upcoming quilts. Until the last week or two, I hadn't really made buttons before (except for a couple to use in jewelry), but I decided to look into the possibilities, since I may host a "clay day", sometime soon. Ten on Tuesday: Ten Links Relating to Polymer Clay Buttons 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. For added strength, bake buttons longer than the minimum time recommended. 8. 9. 10. These links (and a couple of pages in Sue Heaser's new Encyclopedia of Polymer Clay Techniques) helped me learn most of what I needed to know about polymer clay buttons-- plenty enough to get started. Happy button-making! Labels: buttons, links, polymer clay, ten on tuesday

Un conte d'aujourd'hui - Liz & FrogNe connaissant pas forcément d'autres contes de fée basés sur une chaussure (à part les bottes de 7 lieux, mais ça ne cadre pas avec l'objet en question), je me permets d'en inventer un. Il était une fois une magnifique, gentille et douce polymèriste (oui oui, je parle de moi :-p). Chaque jour, elle aimait créer des objets pour les gens qui l'entouraient et s'asseyait tout les après-midis, au soleil, dans sa véranda, avec ses chats. A l'occasion des fêtes de fin d'année, elle confectionna une chaussure en léopard pour sa petite soeur. Elle eu tellement de succès auprès de son entourage qu'elle s'attaqua au second escarpin. Arriva enfin le grand moment du lever de rideau. La douce polymèriste eu à peine le dos tourné que la méchante Einat entra dans la véranda, ouvrit son sac et y glissa l'objet de sa convoitise. La conte s'arrète ici pour le moment. Plus sérieusement, voici la photo de l'objet en question. Un petit lien supplémentaire si vous souhaitez en savoir plus sur les estampes.
